It closes fine when not chambering a round...and I've tried it with and without the bullet guide...this is a fully converted saiga
I would start with cleaning everything thoroughly, including the chamber. Take the bolt out of the carrier and clean everything that rotates and slides, then grease it all lightly. Check the gas tube and piston for obstructions. Your recoil spring could b worn out, replace it if cleaning doesn't help. Was the gun purchased brand new and had this problem out of the box?
